About the book
Neuroimaging is one of the main topics in radiology and neuroscience for probing brain normal physiology and disease alterations. In vivo brain neuroimaging with new technologies of multiple imaging modalities including MRI, PET, CT, EEG/MEG has achieved great success with high spatial and temporal resolutions. Earlier identification of key pathological signatures of diseases with advanced imaging techniques is critical for effective treatment and disease prevention. Utilization of ultra-fast and superior high resolutions methodologies and applications such as parallel imaging, connectome and PET/MRI integration in large cohort with multiple longitudinal monitoring has broaden the neuroimaging field to the new era of precise and personal diagnosis and treatment. Multi-parametric neuroimaging metrics for clinical research such as functional and structural connectivity and activity, blood flow, glucose and metabolism, as well as pathological molecular imaging are of special interest.
The contents of this book will highlight the possibility and achievement of early detection and multiple biomarkers based on various neuroimaging features for physiological probe and medical treatment. This book will hope to introduce the readers some perspectives using neuroimaging with forefront and innovative medicine applications; and will help convey the technical and developmental aspects in medicine research and development field.
